“The Distance” Poem by A. Roze

21 Jul

Now I remember what it feels like to miss you.

Like an empty void that no one else could fit through.

Mind starts racing, wondering if your ok,

Thoughts start chasing, running circles, no breaks.

Try to give myself back, to the moment at hand,

But it seems your the only thing, My subconscious understands.

The whole world suddenly seems so small,

As if there were nothing else in it at all.

No thoughts, no ideas, Or things to do,

No stories to tell If I can’t first tell you.

Now I remember how it feels to want something I can’t have.

Not like cars or clothes or jewelry or cash,

Cuz right about now, I’d give up any of that,

Just to have you back.

All those quirks that used to get on my nerves,

Can’t be worse than having to write this verse,

Just to ease my mind a bit,

Help myself get over it,

But its not working anyway,

No, not today, you just won’t go away,

Posted up inside my head,

Kicked off your shoes,

Made your bed,

Lying comfortably cuz you already paid your rent,

Chillin’ like a lazy Sunday.

I’ll just have to go a different route,

Let you be, Instead of trying to kick you out,

There must be a reason your here,

So i’ll let go of the fear,

And try embracing the doubt,

Since you’re obviously something I can’t go without.

Now it’s all becoming clear,

I just know I can feel your soul my dear,

Why was I even feeling down?

Just because you’re not around,

Doesn’t mean I can’t feel the sound

of your thoughts and emotions matching mine pound for pound.

We are one.

Can’t be undone.

Hearts entwined sometimes tricks the mind

Into feeling like we’re alone.

Funny though, that it’s because we’re so together,

That the distance makes us better.

Seems we grow closer through space and time.

No more knot in my stomach,

I know I’ll be fine,

I can rest assured,

My heart won’t hurt,

Tomorrow, when you leave again for work.

~A. Rozier
